I don't believe replacing perl scripts with ocaml ones is The Right
Thing to do... Just because in simple cases perl or sh is going to be
twice as short. OCaml mainly favors programming in large.

I know OCaml quite well, but still do scripting in perl or sh. Example:
extended lambda calculi interpreter written in OCaml + test suite
written in perl.
